Shane McGowan

when I saw them live, Shane was clearly drunk, and they kicked off with the Irish rover which was much too fast for him, he mumbled his way through every other word, they propped him up on his mike stand, fed him pints of orange juice and he gradually sobered up through the gig

Giving their fans what they came to see

In many ways the Pogues were contemporary with my adult life. All 40 years of it

I even lived in London-Irish country for a while

While I was a Pogues fan, it was them or The men they couldn't hang who were trying to make it big at the same time, and TMTCH were an awesome live band. The Pogues made it and TMTCH went back to busking after a few albums all on different labels. I also have fond memories of Shane's cameo appearance in Eat the rich.

A long and very varied career (just reading it leaves me breathless).

A long life and a good life, I congratulate him.

I see that All In The Family lasted for nine seasons, and then Archie Bunker's Place for four more. I believe I saw the first four seasons which is a couple of seasons longer than I usually stick with a series. I think that it was well-conceived, well-written, well-cast, well-acted.

In 1976 he had 7 TV shows airing at the same time:

All in the Family
Sanford and Son
Maude
Good Times
The Jeggersons
One Day At a Time
Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman

5 of them were regularly in the top 10 of the ratings. That's got to be a record that will never be beaten (Chuck Lorre seems to be trying). Over his entire career he produced 26 TV series.

OTOH, his filmography is totally blank from 1999 to 2016 (he created a revamped "On Day At a Time" in 2017) -- what a slacker.
